Something new...

After a long time, looks like travel will be back on the agenda... Next week will be a quick trip to China. It will be a first for me, not the first time to China, but the first time I will have crossed the International date time... all this assumes that my Visa / Passport arrives back from the Chinese embassy on Friday afternoon...
Would have preferred more notice and chance to prepare for the work I will be doing in China, but that always seems to be a luxury that is never achieved.

I will be difficult to keep in touch with home as there is a  +15 hour time difference.

Year 6...

So MrGrumpy has survived 6 years in California, he is less Grumpy, well most of the time. The exception is during his new commute to / from Mountain View on the 101 (a road that has a parking lot like rush hour for about 16 hours a day!)...

OOps, seem to have missed last year...

Wow, my last posting on here was 2016... well it is now 2018 and almost 6 years since I started this blog.
I don't expect anybody still follows it, it's more a place for me to remember what has happened now.
Well 2018 is becoming an interesting year, during 2017 we finally got our green cards and now Little Miss Naughty has a little job to keep her busy.

Ms Spooky (Aka Smokey) is still doing nothing and her attempts at emulating the world's most idle cat are as good as ever.

London calling...

Well not long now and we will be heading from San Jose to London Heathrow...

It has been two years since we were back in the UK, it only seems like a few months, it will be great to catch up with friends and family, the three weeks will be gone before we know it.

Not looking forward to the long flights, airports, security and immigration, it has been nice not to travel for a while, you soon forget how painful and slow everything is that involves air travel. But at least it is not quite as bad as visiting the DMV...

The Past Year...

"Time passed, stuff happened, things broken, things fixed..." is MrGrumpy's executive overview of the past year...

Wow it's been almost another year...

Not long now and MrGrumpy will have been in the US for 4 years... Maybe MrGrumpy will get around to posting an update to cover some of the things that have happened over the last year...
